When it comes to gifts, my kid’s grandmothers don’t really need more things or knick knacks. We are always looking for creative gift ideas that are affordable, fun, and kid friendly. It’s not too late to make a Saturday plan to treat grandma tomorrow. Here are Mother’s Day Gifts for Grandma:
- The Open When Envelopes via DadMumBaby. My daughter made these last December for her grandmother who lives across the country. She personalized them and was able to create each note using markers and paper that we already had on hand. My mom recently told me how much she treasures this gift.
- Turn Children’s Art into Tea Towels (or Reusable Bags). We loved this genius idea from Setting for Four! I found three blank reusable canvas bags at the consignment store and purchased printable iron-on sheets. My daughter drew directly on two bags with fabric markers, including a joke with a punch line, and we ironed on one of her drawings. I loved the way these turned out!
- Hand or Foot Print Art via A Mom’s Take. We tried this with feet on canvas last winter and it was a bit tricky. I recommend getting out the finger paints, going outside in swimsuits, and having a hose on hand. The trick here is to avoid perfectionism. Rember, this is a gift from your child to grandma.
- Generations Framed Photos. This idea from Cool Mom Picks takes a bit of planning. Perhaps you can present the idea to grandma as a frame and then take the photos in the coming weeks. I love how a bright frame is used here to bring generations into one photo!
- Tea or Brunch with Grandma. Have your children invite grandma to a tea or brunch, maybe even a picnic! They do all of the work and grandma simply comes to enjoy good food, decorations, and company.
